Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “New York Gov. Kathy Hochul Urges Social Media CEOs To 'Examine Their Policies' After Buffalo Shooting”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) wants social media companies to “examine their policies” as Buffalo grapples with Saturday’s violent shooting massacre orchestrated by 18-year-old white supremacist Payton Gendron.

In an interview with CNN host Dana Bash on Sunday, Hochul said social media companies should be doing more to prevent the spread of white supremacist theories that are radicalizing young people on the internet.

Hochul pointed to a 180-page document filled with racist theories, which Gendron reportedly posted online.

“That is what is so bone-chilling about it, is that there is the ability for people to write and subscribe to such philosophies filled with hate, the White supremacists’ acts of terrorism that have been fermented on social media,” Hochul told Bash.

Authorities are still working to confirm the authenticity of the manifesto, the Associated Press reported.
